Policy Based Routing

Unanswered Question
Apr 11th, 2008

Good afternoon,

I have configured two route maps that I will assign to different interfaces. I am testing with a Cisco 4506 loaded with Version 12.2(37)SG. When I go to assign the route-map to a particular interface, I complete the following commands:

conf t

int gig2/6

and there is no command for ip policy route-map map-tag.

Is there something I am missing on a 4506? It is Cisco IOS version.

Thank you.

Dwane

I have this problem too.

Have you configured the interfaces as layer 3 routed interfaces ie.

conf t

int gi2/6

no switchport

If the interfaces are layer 2 switchports which they are by default then the "ip policy ..." command will not be available.

Jon,

Thanks for the quick response, but I have an ip address on that interface.

interface GigabitEthernet2/6

description test HRC to ERC

no switchport

ip address 192.168.254.1 255.255.255.248

spanning-tree portfast

interface Vlan503

ip address 10.101.254.254 255.255.255.128

ip helper-address 129.111.26.6

ip helper-address 129.111.26.7

no ip redirects

ip route-cache same-interface

no ip route-cache cef

no ip route-cache

These are the two interfaces I would like to assign the Route-maps.

This is weird.

THanks

Just checked Feature Navigator. IP base image does not support PBR. For PBR you need Enterprise Services.

Which feature set do you have ?

Jon,

That is what we thought until we went out and read the Guide for 12.2.37 SG and it showed us exactly how to do this? How the heck can you offer up the ability to do route-maps and not the ability to assign the route-maps?

It is the IP based image. cat4500-IPBASEK9-M

Thanks

My apologies. I said "how can you offer" when I meant how can Cisco offer the ability to create route-maps and not the ability to assign them? Weird. I will look at upgrading. Can you send me the link that you were refering to for the feature sets?

Thanks again for all your help.

You need a SupIV or better for PBR. If you are running SupII, it won't support that feature.

Edison,

Here is our sup for this switch:

1 2 Supervisor IV 1000BaseX (GBIC) WS-X4515 JAE1118FGLD

is our Sup.

This is odd.

Edison and Jon,

I think Jon hit right on the head with the PBR not being supported in the IP BASIC IOS. IT is supported in the enterprise version. I am sitll not sure why Cisco would offer the route-map capability with the the ability to assign the route-map to an interface.

THis is all too weird.

Thanks for your help. Great Job. Thanks for the advice.

route-map is not only for PBR. You can use route-map for route distribution.

for instance,

router rip

redistribute connected metric 1 route-map test

Yes, I know the version you are running isn't capable of supporting PBR. I was merely pointing out the fact that you can use route-map (which is a component of PBR) for other purposes.

The key command for PBR is ip policy route-map.
